Good Morning Houseologie readers! I’m Tara – the girl behind Anything & Everything where I share DIY projects, crafts, recipes, to anything in-between! I was ecstatic when Leigh Anne asked me to guest post for her today, as I love her style as well as her creative mind!
Today I am sharing a super quick and easy way to make some party/patio lights using mini red cups! Yes, MINI red cups I said! When I stumbled upon these cute little guys at Walmart, I started to hum a little tune in my head “Red Solo Cup, I’ll fill you up, let’s have a party!” A little Toby Keith song. For those of you unfamiliar, Google it! It’s a catchy little tune that will have you putting on your dancing shoes! Anyways back to the project at hand, at $1.97 (I think) for a pack of 20, I snatched them up knowing I would be able to create something fun out of them.
With summer, holidays, and outdoor gatherings right around the corner, I decided to install one of those freestanding patio covers and turn them into fun outdoor party lights! Memorial Day and the 4th of July will be creeping up on us soon, so I decided it would be fun to give them a patriotic feel. Here is how my DIY Patriotic Party Lights came together!
